Classy-Casual…

IMG_9021IMG_9025IMG_9027This has got to be hands down one of the best purchases I have ever made at F21. This dress was suuuuper affordable, and I get compliments on it constantly, which I attribute to the print not looking like a cheap floral, as well as the cut. I just took quick snaps, so forgive me on the lack of detail here, but this dress is a high-neck cut that ties in the back above a V-cut, and has a little bit of a cut out in the front. The length is perfect for me, and the gathered waist is flattering. I typically wear this with minimal jewelry, maybe just a bangle or two to offset.

I feel like my arms are an area of my body I could improve on. We all know I have long monkey arms, you should see the monkey photos my sister loves to tag me in (ugh), but they’re not overly toned. Definitely room for improvement, but I feel like a high-neck dress or top is always a flattering choice, whether you’ve got great noodles going on or not. It draws attention upward, leaving just the right amount of skin showing to accentuate your arms and shoulders, and works whether you’ve got a big set of twins or small. This dress is appropriate for all occasions and I actually would say I wear it way more casually than I do in dressy situations. It’s just the right amount of easy-breezy middle ground for summer, paired with flat sandals it becomes a really great option for day-to-night transition without feeling underdressed or obligated to wear heels. Easily the best $16 I have ever spent at F21. Well done.
